But for me it is more hard when you don't have players, when you just have XI, when you don't have any problems, when you just choose exactly the same XI every week.

"Why should we do that?"

"It is pretty normal that some point we would spent more money than other years". I am always aiming as high as I can and if we can put West Ham in the Champions League why not?

Former Arsenal star Merson believes the Reds still need to sign a new centre-half partner for Van Dijk if Klopp is to lead the Merseyside outfit to their first Premier League title.

"We have to be in a championship mode". "Let's go for it until we have no more air or oxygen, really go for it". We are the ones that have to do more, to fight more, to do all these things.

Alisson, Keita and Fabinho are expected to go straight into Liverpool's first-team, while Shaqiri offers an experienced alternative to the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino in attack.

And while Klopp would like that fortune to change he knows there are other factors which are more important.

Klopp however pointed out that there could be further departures from Anfield, with the transfer window still open for major leagues in Spain, France, Italy and Germany.

"We did not reach anything yet, we have been in finals and if we get there again we should try to win it".

"We had to create a squad which is strong enough and wide enough to cope with the Premier League and to be as successful as possible". The champions are Manchester City; they didn't lose any player and they brought in Mahrez, so that doesn't make them weaker.

"Step by step, we come closer".

"We have to be more consistent to be there and more clinical and aggressive in the right moments".

"It is hard for us and the other teams too". We need to improve everything.

Chicharito added: "The manager called me before the World Cup because he knew my situation was hard at the end of last season, and he made me feel very good".
